Stepping foot into the incredible LOWNDES GROVE venue in Charleston is like escaping into a tropical haven, nestled deep into the Low Country. This beautiful wedding editorial by Virginia wedding photographer DANIELLE DEFAYETTE was styled by THE EDIT COLLECTIVE and the PPHG EVENTS team, and will have you falling in love with the Low Country in no time at all. Danielle shares with us, "The gorgeous CHRISTIE TRAINER made a perfect bride in her gown by Charleston based designer, EMILY KOTARSKI. Adorned with delicate jewels from another Charleston native, EMMA KATSKA, she was a vision. Her handsome beau, GREG KEYS, wore a traditional black tux. The editorial featured some of the most decadent reception decor and sophisticated floral displays by ON A LIMB FLORALS and the PPHG EVENTS team also created a wonderful array of handcrafted cocktails and hor d'oeuvres for the event. The tablescapes were adorned with beautiful floral arrangements and fresh fruit, which made the entire scene look quite like a Renoir painting. The delectable cake was created by JESSICA GROSSMAN and was just too lovely to eat! The evening was completed with a romantic golden hour stroll down the iconic boardwalk at Lowndes Grove and could not have been a more wonderful end to the day!"
A huge thank you to Virginia wedding photographer DANIELLE DEFAYETTE for sharing this beautiful inspiration with us. Danielle is always seeking and finding joy and looking for that dreamy light - whether it's capturing incredible love stories for couples who appreciate timeless film images, obsessing over precious newborn cheeks, or taking crazy road trips to beautiful places with massive cotton candy coloured tulle dresses packed into the back of her car. "Capturing images has become second nature to me and I find myself searching for the human connection in every photograph I take. I believe in providing an unforgettable wedding photography experience for each of my couples, in addition to capturing classic, luminous, editorial images that have you falling in love all over again. Though my work, I focus on the simple and meaningful while manipulating light to capture the magic of each moment. My goal is to build a legacy through beautiful art that will provide meaning for generations to come." Head over to her portfolio to see more of her work.
